28 Apr Small Business COVID-19 Forum #2

All Yarra Valley based businesses are invited to attend our second Small Business COVID-19 Forum. 

Hosted by Yarra Valley Business and Cire Training.

WHY:       Your opportunity to pose a pre-supplied question/s to Bridget Vallence MP (and a local government guest tbc) based on current events that may be impacting your business.  We’ll endeavour to answer as many questions as possible and provide invaluable support (where we can, in the time allowed) to help you navigate pertinent issues that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Bridget Vallence MP, State Member for Evelyn

Local Government Representative (TBC)


As Business Owners, we are all currently experiencing unprecedented times.  There is much confusion and enormous impact occurring, on both business and family life.  

Member for Evelyn Bridget Vallence MP will discuss the government response to COVID-19 and how she sees this playing out in the Yarra Ranges, and business beyond the COVID crisis.

Further details to come.  

  • Pre-supplied questions responded to as time permits.


Upon registration you will receive a link enabling you to dial in remotely (100pax limit) to the Virtual Forum. Successful applicants can only supply questions beforehand, as no questions will be taken from the floor during the session.  A chat room will be available for further questions should time permit.

We look forward to your attendance on Tuesday.

BOOK NOW TO SECURE YOUR PLACE – Registrations open midday, April 28.
